View Full Version : First day at school and so tired!

01-05-2008, 06:20 AM
Well, my first day at school was ok, I guess. It ended at 3.15, and then I went back home straight from school. But, half the time in school, I was so tired and I wanted to doze off! I feel so bad and terrible because it is only the first day of school! How? School is going to be more demanding this year as I am going to sit for a major exam and I have 3 tests next week! What should I do?

If you guys have any tips and experience coping with school life, please feel free to tell me. I will be more than happy to receive them.

I work at a school in the USA, I don't know how schools in your country are set up. Does your school have a counselor who you can talk to? If so, can you confide in him or her about your condition, take some information so they can learn about it and help you through these first weeks? You may need to modify your schedule a bit, plan rest times.

Be sure you get your sleep - that is so important - even if you don't study as much. If you are too exhausted you won't recall the information you've sutdied.

Hugs dear, there are others on the board who are close to your age and who will have good coping ideas for getting through the school day. I'm sure they'll chime in soon.

Thank you for your encouragement and support. Yep, there is a counsellor in my school and I am having an appointment with her next Tuesday to talk about stuff and yeah I think I get the sleep that I needed eventhough on two occasions I actually fall asleep without studying for my maths test. Anyway, wish me luck because I have another doctor's appointment next Friday. I hope everything goes well.

I am wishing you the very best and hoping, also, that your next appointment goes well. Let us know what your counselor is willing to do to help you at school!

Peace and Blessings
